A Pembroke child was injured in a single-vehicle wreck on I-24 this morning.
Kentucky State Police say 29-year old Kelly Unger of Pembroke was eastbound about two miles from the Tennessee state line just after 8am when the left, rear tire blew out and caused her to lose control.
Ms. Unger ran off the right side of the roadway and struck an embankment, causing her vehicle to overturn. Restrained in a booster seat was 5-year old Jonathan Unger, who had to be taken by ambulance to Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, though his injuries didn’t immediately appear to be life-threatening.
Ms. Unger was also taken to Blanchfield, according to the report.
